Jim Jordan Demands ‘Mainstream Media Apologize’ for ‘Ignoring Hunter Biden Story’

Republican Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has put the Democrats’ allies in the corporate media on notice by demanding that mainstream outlets “apologize” for refusing to report on the Hunter Biden “Laptop from Hell” story.

When the laptop story first broke in the run-up to the 2020 election, most mainstream media outlets ignored the damaging story to protect Democrat President Joe Biden’s campaign by falsely claiming the reports were “Russian disinformation.”

Now Jordan is arguing that the media owes the American people an apology for denying them the information before they submitted their ballots.

“Maybe the FBI should spend less time working with Big Tech to suppress the Hunter Biden story and more time on solving actual crimes,” Jordan said.

“Will the mainstream media apologize for ignoring the Hunter Biden story?”

As Slay News reported last week, Twitter’s former safety chief Yoel Roth admitted that the social media platform’s decision to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story in October 2020 was a mistake.

Jordan responded to the confession by arguing that Roth is now only coming clean because the truth is coming out.

“The new information he has is; now Elon Musk owns Twitter,” Jordan said.

“And [Musk] said Twitter interfered with the election.

“And the new information he has is; there was an election on November 8th and Republicans won the House.

“That’s the new information he has, that suddenly he has this come to Jesus moment.

“So we know how this works.

“But deep down, the Left no longer believes in the First Amendment. They don’t.

“And that’s why they want to have the FBI talking to social media platforms and changing and influencing what they put up there for the American people to read and see and comment on.

“That is scary because the Left says, if you don’t agree with me, you’re not allowed to talk.

“And if you try, we’re going to come after you.

“We’re going to suppress it or we’re going to try to cancel you.

“We’re going to call you names, we’re going to call you racists and all kinds of things.

“That’s how the Left operates.

“And it’s not how the country is supposed to work.

“And it’s certainly not what the First Amendment’s about,” he said.

Twitter CEO Elon Musk echoed Jordan, saying he wants Twitter to put pressure on the mainstream media to make them more truthful.

Musk said: “Well, I think those people should be looking in the mirror and wondering why they were deceptive.

“Why did they deceive the American public?

“And instead of trying to redirect blame to Matt Taibbi, accepting some responsibility themselves to not being truthful to the American public.”

“If the new Twitter is successful in that, then the result would be that people will turn to Twitter to understand what is true, what is real, what narrative matters.

“This will put a lot of competitor pressure on mainstream media and other social media companies to also be more truthful because otherwise, they’ll simply keep losing people to Twitter.

“Twitter will become successful and gain share from other social media and it will force other social media to stop toeing the line.

“That’s where the competition can be a good thing.

“The Washington Journal, the New York Times, and Washington Post, and a few others decide what the narrative is.

“Even if what they say is completely truthful, the people don’t really get a choice in what topics are covered, whereas on Twitter, they do.

“And it could be something really important to the world and the big news organizations don’t cover it for a reason.

“What happens is when there’s a competition for what the truth is and one company steps out of line, it does allow the truth to flourish.”
